    From yesterday's Irish Times
    A Volunteer aid worker deployed last week under the Government's Rapid Response initiative has died suddenly in Sri Lanka.

    Conor Lyons, the first member of the rapid response corps to be deployed overseas, arrived in Colombo on Spetember 3rd to work with the UN World Food Programme for three months.

    It is understood that Mr Lyons, a logistic expert from Thurles, Co Tipperary, passed away in the Sri Lankan capital yesterday morning. He had previously worked with Irish aid agency Goal in Sri Lanka, in addition to spells with the UN in Liberia, Kosovo and East Timor.

    and best wishes to his family, freinds and comrades
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

            British officer: You're seven minutes late, Mr. Collins.
            Michael Collins: You've kept us waiting 700 years. You can have your seven minutes.

            Michael Collins: So that's what all the bother was about.
